    American Handgunner is all I read anymore, it's not perfect but less BS than most.

    I will echo SatCong and Dolphin on American Handgunner and also recommend Combat Handguns.
    God bless our troops!

    ShotgunNews for me. I get the special annuals from most of the well known publishers off the local new stand when I see something that catches my eye. Other than that, American Rifleman is always a good read and to keep up on local events.

    IMO, Combat Handguns is the best read.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    Combat handguns is great, I used to buy in the supermarket and make sure it lay on top, love watching the sheep squirm, although had a few guys say "cool" now get it in the mail to save money.

    Surplus Firearms is wonderful, I love the spread on old firearms.

    Shotgun news is good bang for the buck, although I am sure lots of duck hunters wonder way they almost always have an AR on the cover!!

    +1 on SWAT. You don't have to be an Operator to learn TONS from the articles. One of the few mags that actually has articles on Mindset.
